Maintenance for Turbine-Driven Generators
Author: Clyde V. Maughan, PE, Emeritus, Maughan Engineering Consultants
This book provides a maintenance manual which will help turbine-generator users remove some of these uncertainties, and thereby work more effectively and efficiently with their service providers in maintaining high reliability of their generators without unnecessary expenditures. The text is written from a manufacturer perspective, based on an experience background in generator design, manufacturing and service, as well as many years as an independent consultant. Focus of the text will intentionally be narrowly focused toward including only information directly relating to making optimum maintenance decisions.Download PDF E-Book.
